Be Busy | Be Balanced | Be Beautiful

“Opportunity is missed by most because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work." Thomas Edison

Work is often plain in its appeal, yet profound in its impact. If appropriated, the principle of mastering the often mundane of hard work, will transform your thinking and indeed your life.

Having order takes work and is paramount in our homes and our lives as a whole. 
The demise of civility is disorder. Order regulates our society, our schools, colleges, businesses, churches, and our homes. 

A home needs developing over a number of years and with the right steps in place, is an achievable position for every woman. Single, separated, strong, or struggling, a great home is cultivated one-step at a time.

“Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.” Proverbs 14:1 

God's ways are superior yet simple enough for anyone to understand. 

The good news is, that it is never too late or too early to start learning the skills necessary for building a home that will grow into a haven for you and your loved ones. 
We are all a work in progress, and the perfect time to assess and address your concerns, is now!

  • Are you busy building your home?
  • Are you busy developing balance?
  • Are you busy growing eternally beautiful?

Busyness and balance is achievable for anyone. You need a perpetual willingness to listen, learn, and absorb the light of God's blueprint for living - the Bible.

Is laziness an issue for you? Does your tongue get a workout more than your hands?

Balancing Tips
  • Eliminate distractions (not the children); silence your cell phone and focus. Set limits on your social media activities
  • Physically present; spend more time at home and perhaps less time socializing
  • Manage or damage control; take pride in managing your home rather than confronting daily disorder. Maintaining your environment will provide stability, security, and sustainability
  • Master the mundane; excuses sabotage progress
  • Have a schedule; make a plan and prepare to succeed
  • Decide what you need, then provide what others need; ten cookbooks are unnecessary unless you own a restaurant. Four blenders are excess gadgets unless you plan to sell smoothies from a backyard booth. Decide what you need and use then simply give the balance away. Be a blessing to other women less fortunate than you are
  • Approach order one-step at a time. Lower your expectations and introduce achievable increments for prioritizing, planning, preparing, and producing your desired outcome
  • Step back and make yourself a schedule. Decide when you can fit time into going through your closets, cupboards, containers, and crevices, and do a clean sweep. Be ruthless!
Elimination is the first detail in a detailed home. Clearing the clutter clearly comes first. If not, you will keep yourself from having order in the house.

Hard work is not going to be easy; its going to be worth it. Build, develop, and grow - one skill at a time.

Home improvements are never too late just as heart improvements are the best welcome mat to lay at the door of your home. 

Please, join us at the “Open Doors Conference” and enjoy learning the skills for balancing a busy life, whilst being poised and polite. Space is limited!
